Co-op Community Dividend Fund

Deadline 31st July 2021

The Central England Co-operative serves local communities across England by putting 1% of its trading profit back into the community, making cash awards to help local causes and make a positive difference.

The funding is intended to support four broad categories of projects:

  • Fund-raising efforts of a school, college, community organisation or group, residential or day-care facility or hospital project.
  • Contributions towards a voluntary, self-help or ‘not-for profit’ organisation other than those listed above.
  • Donations to a local charity or cause, or the local branch of a national charity, that will benefit the local community, for example the provision of equipment, enhancement of the physical environment, training or education programme.
  • Contributions to environmental and social projects that will enhance the local community or raise awareness of environmental issues amongst local residents.

Grants of between £100 and £5,000 are available. The average grant is £2,000.
